A Bridge Too Far

Here we go again.

With his final term in the City Council coming to an end in less than a month, Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. has only a little time left to work on passing some of his bills that will impact the City for years to come and put a bow on his Council career.

Or, he can introduce legislation to revert the name of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge to just the Queensboro Bridge.

Yes, Vallone is taking one more crack at his pet peeve on the bridge’s name, which was changed in honor of the late Mayor in 2011.

The bill would change back the name and instead honor Koch by naming the Manhattan Municipal Building the Ed Koch Manhattan Municipal Building.

“I wanted to start the process so that Queens elected officials who come after me can restore the Queensboro Bridge to its rightful owners while simultaneously providing an appropriate honor for the late Mayor Koch,” he said.

Maybe Vallone’s right. Perhaps another councilman will take up the fight for the Queensboro Bridge and get the City Council to restore its name.

If you believe that though, we’ve got a bridge to sell you!
